PREFACE. 



In sending out the &st portion of "The Church 
Heraldry of Norfolk," I feel that it devolves on me 
to preface the work with some few words of explanation, 
that the Subscribers may know what they have to 
expect, and thus not be dissappointed if it fails to reach 
the height of their previous anticipations. In the circular 
which was issued about a year ago it was stated 
that the work would contain a description of all the 
coats of arms now to be found in the l^orfolk churches, 
and I wish to say further that these descriptions will 
be all given from sketehes which were made by me on 
the spot. I am perfectly aware that it must be a work 
of time, still I do not despair of completing it. 

Before now a commencement has been made in 
this important addition to our county histories; indeed, 
I must confess to being much indebted to the 
excellent papers • written under the pseudonym of 
Pedometer and published in The Eastern Counties^ 
Collectanea some years ago. Much the same thing 
has been done for the county of Essex, and printed 
in the East Anglian; and in that valuable periodical 
are also some scattered articles containing the heraldry 
and inscriptions in a few Norfolk churches, but I am 

715 



not aware that up to the present time any attempt 
has been made to put such collections into the form 
of a book, properly arranged and indexed. That is 
what I am endeavouring to do. 

I am sure it will be acknowledged by all there is great 
need that such a work should be no longer delayed: the 
misfortune is that it was not commenced some while ago. 
In this age of church restoration much heraldry has been 
destroyed which could have been copied then: not only- 
have most of the hatchments been removed from the walls, 
first either into the vestry or tower, and then, as I have 
seen, to the rubbish heap outside; but in those years 
monuments have totally disappeared, while numberless 
slabs, and some few brasses, have been covered up 
by the altar daiSj or the organ, or the chancel pews. 
But few of these memorials of the dead will see the light 
again, certainly not in our day; of fewer still has any 
record been taken. Here and there I have met with an 
isolated case, in the which some interested person has 
done the good work, but it is the exception, alas! not 
the rule. 

I can hardly dare to hope that in the following pages 
no single shield in any of the churches has been left 
undescribed. I am prepared for some few omissions. 
I can only hope that some bne may find them out, that 
I may be enabled to insert the additions with the 
corrections before the book is brought to its close. 

I trust that the arrangement which I have adopted 
may be easily intelligible to those who seek in these 
pages for information. Each parish has been taken 
quite separately ; by this I mean that every coat which 
occurs there has been once described in it, and then 



Ill 



afterwards only referred to by name. In the description 

of each coat I have stated first that which is on the 

monument or slab, and then, immediately following it, 

with the name in brackets, by reference to either Burke's 

Armory or PapwortKa Ordinary^ I have given the 

tinctures as usually borne by the family to whose memory 

the monument was erected; then in a separate paragraph 

I have added whatever portion of the inscription I thought 

worthy of record or likely to be of use. Wherever a 

copy of the Eoyal Arms remains I have given it. I 

have also been careful in noticing, as far as possible, the 

position in the buildings which the memorials occupy. 

I take this opportunity of tendering my thanks to the 
many kind friends who have given me help, more especially 
to Mr. Elvin, of Eckling Grange, East Dereham, who 
has with great care, and no small amoimt of labour, 
revised my proofs, and endeavoured, with his great 
experience, to make up for the deficiency in mine. To 
Sir Kenneth Kemp my thanks are also due for the 
kindness which prompted him to take upon himself the 
cost of engraving the Gissing shields. I hope that 
others, interested in like manner, may be tempted to follow 
his good example, and so help to make the work more 
attractive to the subscribers.

it, blazons it thus, '' Barry of ten, gules and argent/' and fails

Clifton, in which error he is followed by Burke and others. 
Through the kindness of my friend, Mr. Manning, I am able 
to give as my authority for assigning it to Cailly, the funeral 
certificate of Sir Thomas Knyvett, published in The Topographer 
and Genealogist, vol. i. 472. It is very evident from its position 
in the shields, both here and in New Buckenham Church, that 
it can have been intended for no other family.

SHELTON. 

I should think, from the appearance of the tombs in this 
church, that the shields thereon were repainted about fifty years 
ago, without any regard to tinctures. In every case the field of 
the Shelton coat is " vert," whereas it should be " azure." I have 
given them exactly as they are, and where it is evident what 
they ought to be, I have stated it.

This Ralph is made out to be High Sheriff of Norfolk in 1570,

from the account in Blomefield.

the inscription runs, "George England nuper de Stokesby," I 
gather that the arms here must have been for England, " Three

Great Yarmouth Church, on a hatchment, are the arms of 
England, "Gules, three lions passant in pale argent, each 
charged with an ermine spot." 

The inscription is also nearly obliterated, but I can distinguish 
" George England."
